Cuba Before The Revolution

Ignorance (usually willful) of conditions in pre-Castro Cuba, of Fidel Castro’s background, of US-Cuba relations pre-1960 all contribute to the cliché-ridden Castro legend. With the media wallowing in a Castro-cliché orgy over these hideous past decades let’s examine the truth about pre-Castro Cuba with IMAGES which do speak a thousand words! In 1958, only 7 percent of invested capital in Cuba was American, and less than one-third of Cuba’s sugar output (its main crop) was by US companies. Cuba had a grand total of six gambling Casino’s at the time. (Gulfport/Biloxi Mississippi has double that number today.) Cuba’s Gross Domestic product in 1957 was .7 billion. Cuba’s foreign receipts in 1957 were about 0 million–of which tourism made up only million. Gambling was a small fraction of this million. Exactly two Havana hotels were mob-owned (compare this to Las Vegas history.) In 1958, Cuba had approximately 10000 prostitutes. Today an estimated 150000 ply their trade on the desperate island, many as young as 14. And to cap it all off: in 1950 more Cubans (out of a population of six million) vacationed in the US, than Americans (out of 200 million) vacationed in Cuba. At that time, Cubans didn’t come to the US in any great numbers to settle. In fact as a percentage of population, Cuba took in more immigrants (primarily from Europe) in the early 20th century than did the US In the 1950′s, when Cubans were perfectly free to emigrate with all their property and US

The Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care

The Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care

What if your cell phone could detect cancer cells circulating in your blood or warn you of an imminent heart attack? Mobile wireless digital devices, including smartphones and tablets with seemingly limitless functionality, have brought about radical changes in our lives, providing hyper-connectivity to social networks and cloud computing. But the digital world has hardly pierced the medical cocoon.

 Until now. Beyond reading email and surfing the Web, we will soon be checking our vital signs on our phone. We can already continuously monitor our heart rhythm, blood glucose levels, and brain waves while we sleep. Miniature ultrasound imaging devices are replacing the icon of medicine—the stethoscope. DNA sequencing, Facebook, and the Watson supercomputer have already saved lives. For the first time we can capture all the relevant data from each individual to enable precision therapy, prevent major side effects of medications, and ultimately to prevent many diseases from ever occurring. And yet many of these digital medical innovations lie unused because of the medical community’s profound resistance to change.
In The Creative Destruction of Medicine, Eric Topol—one of the nation’s top physicians and a leading voice on the digital revolution in medicine—argues that radical innovation and a true democratization of medical care are within reach, but only if we consumers demand it. We can force medicine to undergo its biggest shakeup in history. This book shows us the stakes—and how to win them.
